Profile Information

Whenever I sit down to write a profile I just stare at the screen with no idea of what to say. Should I write about my hobbies, my likes and dislikes? Should I tell which animal I view myself as or maybe put quotes from others? Should I put in a dirciption of the stories I write and the ones I read? Those all are great ideas but I don't know if I want to say those things.

There is something you should know about me, I am not a story writer. I can't write stories, well I can't write good stories. I do write but not stories. Writing a story takes too much time and I don't think I have the patience, skill, or time to write one. Another reason I don't write is because I love to edit. I really love to edit. For most people the editing process is the worst part of writing. I used to feel that way too until I discovered that I have a natural skill for editing. As I began to edit more and more the less I wanted to write, until finally I decided to trade my pencil for a red pen. 

So you must now be wondering why I am on a writing website. For the simple reason of I want to edit. If I want stories to edit I need to find people who want to improve their stories and what better place to find practice then a writing website.

Everyone on here is looking for people to review their stories. I am willing to review any story but I will only review those stories people ask me to. I do not have the time to find people who want my comments and opinions. If you want me to look at your story all you have to do is ask and I will gladly read and comment on it.

I love stories! I have tons of ideas for stories but I am unable to write them. I do not wish for others to have to give up on something they love because they don't have the skills required. That is why I am here. I want to help others make great, rememberable stories. Even though I can't write stories I know what a good story is and I instinctively know when something is wrong. 

I love helping others and I love stories so I might as well put the two together. If you wish for me to help just ask. It might be hard but asking is always worth the effort. 

There is one more thing you should know, I believe in God. I always have and I always will.
